Bilal Khan is a Pakistani singer with a great fan following. His most well-liked song is Bachana. He was also associated with Coke Studio, and he has also sung OSTs of dramas like Mata e Jaan Hai Tu and Roshan Sitara.
We are not seeing him much these days, but in a recent interview with Dawn Images, Bilal Khan talked about what he’s been up to. “I was in the U.S. for the past few years, getting life experiences, travelling and writing songs. Along the way, I have released a few rough versions of new songs with videos (Bijliyaan), some cover songs (an Urdu cover of a Coldplay number), played a lot of shows in UK, U.S. and Canada and just spent a ton of time trying to hone my songwriting chops.”
“I have been working on music a lot. Although, it’s not obvious right now but I feel it will all make sense one day.”
“I met John Mayer in the U.S. and saw him perform up close — he was my music hero while growing up. It was a very inspiring experience. I also saw Adele at O2 recently in London. Again, it’s one of those experiences, which has really affected me. I’ve jammed with many musicians in the west and I think it has expanded my abilities.”
